ive been trying to figure this out for ages but haven't had any luck.

I even tried to figure it out with a cigarette lighter mount to give power to the base, but i couldnt get it working

Maybe I am over simplifying this. How much do the wireless charging pads draw or whatever the base is that you use? I have an iPhone so I am plugged in. I'm just thinking that couldn't you just tap into a fuse or a wire from under the dash most likely a 12v source or does that not give enough power output?

Your Smart Phones Must be compatible for wireless charging otherwise you have to buy another wireless charging adapter for your phone. Only the newer phones have this capability built in. IPHONES DO NOT.

To some point your not and you can get them for under $20, but this is for a car not home, so i am using the wireless charger from the Chevy Suburben's it more then the home charging pads, and it only draws 2 amps at most.

Yes your right you need a adepter for most phones but if you look there under $10 for that part, we have 4 of them for my note 3.

look on GM they have a list of what will work, and what will not but more and more will work.

Buy this: http://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/mobile/accessory/dt-900/

Splice the wire to hook up to the USB cable running under the armrest console.
Place this underneath the console and voila, wireless charging.
You'll need to do some custom mounting underneath.
Make sure the Nokia logo is facing up.

Don't want to go through the trouble? plug in USB

That's smart idea! I actually have a wireless pad for charging by my bed, but it's the one that is standing up. Thanks though, I might get another now!

You can use the stand up one as well but you may need to sacrifice a cup holder space.

You want your phone screen to be facing the driver, that way your phone doesn't flop forward/backward upon acceleration/deceleration.

Same concept, splice the wire and hook it up to the USB cable below.
